    that'll work!


    on a serious note though im going to bring this up again. ill PM Thwalker and see if he will E-mail the owners. if i didnt like/respect Thwalker any i would just jump right over his head and E-mail Mcgundam myself (her E-mail is in her about me section) but ill follow the proper chain of command. maybe we will get lucky and they will do it this time. closed mouths dont get fed.

    It shouldnt be that hard to implement, someone with admin console rights should be able to upload the files and install the addin... vbulletin is pretty easy to work with, if i remember correctly

    Re: Forum Chat!

    Chats are pretty bad imo, especially with the dying media that is message boards. We used to have one on GE, and pretty much the chat took over. No one posts in threads anymore when you can just spam a chat.

    Re: Forum Chat!

    I Forge Iron has a chat and people are on it a good bit but it never killed the forum. i go to the chat to ask questions that do not deserve a thread or just to hang out. it does a good job of answering the questions that are VERY common and keeping disputes off the threads.

    Re: Forum Chat!

    Were you on the forum before the chat was created? Because i can almost guarantee that it caused a drop in thread activity.

    Especially on a board like this, where half the members barely comment as is lol

    nope cant say i was. im sure there was a drop in thread activity but im saying they have one and it gets used and the threads get used more for updating progress on a project and less for asking the same question over and over and idle talk. we have threads for in depth discussion about painting and scratch building and stuff just like Iforgeiron.com has thread for forge welding and coal forge vs gas forge. the chat helps keep the threads on topic.

    we dont have an integrated chat yet Loin. that was what we were discussing. the only thing we have done is i made a room on Kageshi for us to use and we would do build sessions there. but it is a separate site. https://kageshi.com/rooms/zaku it is always there with or without me and ive modded a lot of the guys from the forums there so they can use it when ever for whatever.

    Yeah that's a fair point.

    But really that happens on allot of fandom forums I've been too dedicated to one thing, that isn't particularly huge in the area most the members are from. I guess it kinda varies. Same with the chat thing in general, I've seen smaller forums with a chat and also have more thread activity than I've ever seen here in five years of being here.

    Personally that said I don't see much of a need for an integrated chat, between Zaku's room and things like discord it's not like there's a lack of ways for people not to get together and chat if they so choose, and since like you mention there's a good possiblity it might just end up harming the forum proper anyways, why risk it?
